A recipient of the Pride Institute’s 2015 “Best of Class” Technology Award, the EyeSpecial C-II is the first digital camera designed exclusively for dentistry. Intended for predictable and consistent clinical photography, case documentation, lab collaboration and patient education, the EyeSpecial C-II achieves brilliant images with simplicity and convenience, according to Shofu Dental Corp.

Equipped with a high-quality sensor and unique FlashMatic module, a proprietary system of flashes and filters, this intelligent camera can demonstrate true-color reproduction and an exceptional depth-of-field range, the company asserts.

Like smart phones and tablets, the EyeSpecial C-II is designed to be highly intuitive and user friendly. It has eight pre-set dental shooting modes for efficient dental photography and features numerous smart functions that can enrich peer-to-peer and lab collaboration and patient education, according to the company.

For instance, the unique isolate shade mode grays out the gingival part of an image to facilitate shade matching for both the lab technician and dentist. The draw/edit function enables making notes on images, which can be an added value when discussing treatment options or progress, or when pointing out problematic areas in treatment modality.

Furthermore, for more efficient visual communication, the LCD screen of the EyeSpecial C-II is larger than displays in typical smart phones and SLR cameras, and it can be operated with a gloved hand.

Thanks to the proliferation of HIPAA-compliant Bluetooth and wireless dental-office technologies, Shofu’s camera can provide the ability to wirelessly interconnect with other systems in the operatory and laboratory. When equipped with a Wi-Fi card, a photograph captured with the EyeSpecial C-II will instantly appear on connected devices, including a desktop computer monitor, laptop or an iPad, turning a dental office or a laboratory into a communication hub.

Designed for comfort and functionality, the EyeSpecial C-II complies with stringent infection control protocols, according to the company. The camera is water-, chemical- and scratch-resistant, and it can be swiftly disinfected with a wipe.

Packed with what Shofu asserts are intuitive, cutting-edge functions, the EyeSpecial C-II will help achieve the varied needs of a busy dental office or lab, whether it is the dentist, assistant or hygienist performing clinical photography, case documentation, lab collaboration or patient communication and education.
